I’ve been looking forward to this giveaway ever since picking up a copy of The Scarlet Pimpernel at Barnes & Nobles two months ago. As usual, the giveaway is open only to residents of the US. I’ll announce the winner next Thursday. In the meantime, leave a comment on this post for a chance to win.
Now, if you will allow me to act as your friend, I will pledge you my word that I will find your son for you.
From rescuing the kidnapped son of a woman cast aside by society to other feats of courage and humanity, this book carries a full dose of the Scarlet Pimpernel’s trademark daring. Instead of a full novel, The League of the Scarlet Pimpernel is made up of several shorter stories. If you’ve enjoyed The Scarlet Pimpernel, you’ll definitely enjoy these too.
I received this book for Christmas two or three years ago. At first I was disappointed to realize that the book wasn’t a full novel, but after I got into the stories I found that I had no need for regrets. The stories are fast paced and mostly lacking the long expositional passages found in some of the other Scarlet Pimpernel books. They’re perfect for a quick read before you go to bed. 😉
Has anyone not read The Scarlet Pimpernel. For those of you who have read it, have you read any of the sequels? Which Pimpernel book is your favorite?
